So, some democrats read this....a lot of democrats read this😉

Two democrats who troll this thread....and I've caught than checking it out even if they don't have a rebuttal or it seems....a clue for to trumps win.

The enthusiasm was the biggest factor....trump had it...clinton not so much.....i mentioned that many months ago.....change...real change...not Obama change.

Secondly, Hillary Clinton has been lying as much as her husband over the years and has been busted for it time and time and time again....

This second point most democrats, especially the ones who voted for her are in DENIAL....some democrats.....particularly----Reagan democrats, or (catholic democrats) in Pennsylvania and Ohio and Iowa and Wisconsin and Michigan and working class black, green, gray, blue, red and white democrats throughout the Entire country also did not vote for Clinton.

Independents....another group I mentioned months ago also voted for trump....even progressive libertarians like myself went for trump over warmonger Clinton.

....the FBI criminal investigation into her pay to plays and her breaking laws regarding classified information took her out of the race....her fault.

....her comments about Catholics, her floupflopping and pandering on issues, and of course her "deplorables" comment sealed the deal.

Democrats are out of power and the number one reason most folks who voted against there former party affiliation is the near embracing RACIST...and seriously BIGOTED IDENTiTY politics with which they have aligned themselves....

We are Americans....not blacks whites, mesopoetamians, or spaniards.

There are technologies where you can record everything said in court but the biggest advantage of having a stenographer in court is that they can ask for clarification of what was said and immediately review the transcript. It would be very hard to all that in the recording.
Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Chosing a School

You have to put in a lot of thought before selecting a good law school. You have to look into the faculty properly like the student-faculty ratio, their diversity with respect to race,ethnic background and gender. Another main important factor that you need to look into is whether they have well stocked library and comfortable study rooms. I am also in the hunt for a good law school and I have already shortlisted a few.
Studying for the LSAT / Re: Reading Anxiety

I enjoy reading too but I do get reading anxiety while preparing for LSAT. I was very nervous initially but I think I am getting better now.

The analytical reasoning is the most difficult part. It is always good to sharpen your mind by playing some logical games. There are several apps in store. The LSAT does not have any penalty in giving the incorrect answer so answer as much as you can.

So, Hilary is now trying to make some money.....again......probably dead broke....

She is becoming Sarah Palin now and channeling her inner Palin....

Bless her corrupt heart...

We know women power is awesome Sarahillry......Sarah Palin has been trumpeting for female power before Barack got into the oval office.....
But, I betcha she wouldn't stand by her man if he was a serial rapist and abuser of women....nope....shed leave he's ass Hugh n dry!!!!

So much for enabling those who choose to cower and stand by their man!
Basically confused why I can't find any student comments about SIU?

Can you shed some light? Do you like attending SIU? How is the program? I'll be applying in April after I get today's LSAT score. It's pretty close to Memphis, and would like to stay in the area.

Please don't tell me not to go to law school or that the job market stinks.

Law School Admissions / Re: URM African American Male

A law degree is a law degree to me. I'm fine with a median tier school.

I'm trying to be nice. Even as an URM, a 140 is really, really low. Check out LSN (lawschool numbers). In 2013, when it was (slightly) easier to get in, you can see this user profile-

Yeah, URM, 145 LSAT, got into Ol' Miss. But there's a big gap between a 140 and a 145. With a 140, you're looking at Florida Coastal type of schools. A 143 and a 3.1 got an URM into the Charleston School of Law (yeah ....).

You will get in somewhere. But that "somewhere" may not be where you want to go to school. And with a 140, you are predicted to seriously struggle in law school, and if you get through the 3 years, to struggle to pass the bar.

I cannot recommend highly enough re-taking the LSAT. Even a 145 (with URM) substantially improves the schools you can get into.

If you must go with that score, send apps to the lower-tier school in the state/metro region you want to practice in, along with a few apps to some reach schools.

Good luck!
